It is a great Sport but Iam afraid to say I have not kept up with it.
Today at lunch I was reading my Sports Illustrated. They had a big article on Pele. It talked about some of the controversy he has had with his Country and other things like being a walking billboard ( I sure cant fault the guy for averaging 28 mil a year in endorsements. But some people do)
Anyway, Argentina's Maradona evidently takes mean shots at Pele whenever he can. He as well as all of Argentina think Maradona and two others were better than Pele in Soccer.
What do some of you think ?
To me Pele the name itself is iconic. Maybe Maradona could have been a better player. But to most of the World Pele is synonymous with Soccer. End of story !!
(Maybe Maradona is just jealous of this fact since he is an Aging fat little fart )
Pele is just like Ali was with boxing. Sure, Tyson at 20 could beat Ali in his prime. But Ali to me is and will always be Boxing . Just as Pele is Soccer.
